Being from the Virgin Islands, Duncan is naturally humble. its in his nature. but he is a VERY shy person. he HATES attention. Doesnt really say much when you meet him and that could lead to some people thinking he is snobby. that is why he always diverts attention to his teammates and gives them the glory, because he doesnt like to be the center of attention.
Manu Ginobili is one of the coolest people you could meet. My uncle met him at costco and Manu stood around and chatted with him for about 2 minutes.
i have noticed that if you treat stars like regular people they will hang out and chat with you, but if you bum rush them like a star crazed fan they will take off.
every single time Iverson goes for 40+ (even his 60 point game) he has given ALL credit to his teammates. even when they were garbage like in Philly. never took credit for anything. even buzzer beaters ("My teammates found me with an amazing pass. I just made a shot." etc etc etc)
but AI doesnt belong on this list at all. im just posting that because its exactly what Duncan does everytime he has a huge game. and they're both always loved by their teammates.
